- Also, Jeffrey Lawton (no, that's not me!) has published a book published by Schiffer cleverly titled 'Bally's Bingo Pinball Machines', so it should be easy to find. Information for each game (like schematics, manuals, flyers, score/instruction card scans/repros, mixer/reflex unit blueprints, etc.) is in the game listings and the paper summary.
We are talking about bingo machines here, mostly Bally, but with a few digressions into United and other manufacturers.
My main interestis the technical details and reference materials. If you are lookingfor interesting reading instead of getting bogged downin techno-babble, click over toDanny Leach's bingo siteor Ray Watts site
If reading isn't your thing, try Nick Baldridge's For Amusement Only podcast and especially look for episodes on the Multi-bingo.

Where's the little numbered balls?
Wrong kinda bingo. We are interested in pinball machinesthat look somewhat like this thing.
They have no flippers, 5+ balls, and are, umm, 'for amusementonly' (we posted a 'No Gambling Allowed' sign on the machine..that's how much we mean it!).
If you want to get the historical perspective, checkout the History link over there to the left. We've swiped articles byRuss Jensen and added some pictures.

A very good computer version of various machines is at http://bingo.joopriem.nl/. Plus, he's building in a method for using the software with a real playfield and cabinet so you can add a computer and display to create a multiple game machine.

Here's as good a place as any for those ancient-school little'what's new' images!
|Danny Chandler bought Randy Walker's new-in-box Miss Universe and is continuing the documentation process. Reflex unit diagram posted - and can of worms opened as his machine doesn't match the schematic that came with the game.||02/19/21|
|Dennis Dodel provided good SI card scans for United Mexico, Tahiti, Havana and Rio. Cards for Leader and ABC added on 2/28. Posted on pages in the game listings.||02/17/21|
|Jack Shoup got hold of another Venice, so the mixer 5 question is resolved and the odd/even reflex unit diagram has been created and posted. Jack provided lots more internal pictures, including both sides of the odd/even circuit board.||01/23/21|
|Mixer and reflex unit diagrams for Venice provided by Jack Shoup. Orient uses the same mixers. Actually, Jack cut the entiremixer assembly and reflex unit out of a parts head and mailed them to me. Worked great except mixer 5 has two 14-x wires attached, so I had to guess which was which. Anyone with a Venice or Orient can verify I got it wrong. Jack didn't have a cabinet, so no info on the odd/even reflex unit yet.||11/15/20|
|Information for mixer 1 & 2 diagrams for Can-Can provided by Jack Shoup. Diagrams posted.||11/8/20|
|The Pacific Pinball Museum's Bally Yacht Club chopped up. Unit diagrams and info posted. Still need to do shutter/ball lift timing diagrams.||2/27/20|
|The Pacific Pinball Museum's Williams Long Beach overhaul completed. Unit diagrams and info posted. This game they will not sell.||4/30/19|
Old entries are hoarded in case you missed them
The bingo game sounds to be very simple enough. The bingo player matches the called numbers to numbers on the cards, but in more involved games with different designs and patterns, confusion can set in very quickly. Become one step ahead of other players and learn the different bingo patterns that are commonly featured at bingo halls or online sites. Making sure you understanding these patterns will help you locate numbers quicker and prevent missed bingo numbers.
There are so many bingo patterns - the variations are pretty much endless! There are Static/Standard Bingo Patterns that cannot be moved, shifted or rotated on the card, there's Moving/Crazy Bingo Patterns which can be rotated by 90º increments (90, 180 or 270 degrees) and lastly there are Wild Bingo Patterns where the bingo pattern is static but can be located anywhere on the card. Below are over 100 examples of the most popular bingo patterns.
